The Chrysler Brand will probably go down in history as one of the great mismanaged of all times. Founded by Walter Chrysler in 1925 and absorbed into the Italian Fiat Organisation in 2014′ Chrysler seemed to go from one crises to another.
The demise of Plymouth and De Soto speak volumes of mismanagement and an inability to foresee or even govern future transport scenarios.
And yet Chrysler and its subsidiary brands produced some really beautiful cars. Many will argue that they weren’t renowned for reliability.
It’s kind of sad that the All American Dream of big cars has ended in amalgamations, takeovers, arrangements, joint ventures and the like when all they should and could have done was listen to their market, and made vehicles to suit in their own factories, with their own people.Chip ‘n Dip Stalletjie
General Motors made their errors as well, but seemed to have weathered the storms of time.
It tells in the dearth of good looking cars that have come off the Chrysler Assembly line.
The Westrand Car Show is a Classic Car Show. TO QUALIFY FOR ENTRANCE TO A COMPETITIVE CLASS, VEHICLES MUST HAVE BEEN BUILT OR REGISTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 1999 OR EARLIER. Only the first 180 QUALIFYING vehicles will receive a commemorative medallion. Any newer vehicle is welcome to be entered as a “non-competitive vehicle” and to be placed on show just because of “the spirit of motoring” and the desire to share the joy that your wheels bring you, with all of the rest of us. See the list of classes below and the entrance form.
Non-Competitive vehicles may enter at the gate on the day.2019 – Competition Classes
